Water Wipes – A kit essential

I’m loving using these wipes on set,at shoots,weddings and because they are natural and suitable for sensitive skin I’ve even been using them at home on my daughter too! Great for removing make up, taking the bulk from make up brushes before using brush cleaner(economical).

Perfect bed side table essential for those late nights when you are too tired to do your skin care regime in your bathroom. A swipe with a Water Wipe will remove your make up so you can sleep guilt free and avoid waking up with the panda eye look!

Water Wipes are made in Ireland so that’s another reason to try them for yourself.

Water Wipes are available in supermarkets and pharmacies throughout the country.

Wow Brown

I just love receiving goodies in the post and cannot wait to try this out. I’ve heard so much about Wow Brown and now I’m so happy I get to try it out myself in the comfort of my own home.

It’s exactly what I need as winter has set in and my pale skin has become even paler.

I’ve tried lots of false tans in my time and I’m extremely fussy about application, wearability, how the tan fades and how long it stays perfect so will be giving Wow Brown my undivided attention in preparation for going out this weekend.

Review on Wow Brown will be posted early next week

Bella Pierre Make Up Review

For the past few weeks I have been using these gorgeous products on clients on shoots,weddings and debs make up applications.

And it’s safe to say that I am in love with them.

The mineral foundations are so soft and light on skin and I was surprised by the coverage that can be achieved when using my Blank Canvas foundation buffer brush to apply it.

The loose powder blushes and bronzers are so pretty, the colours are so universal and I’m loving Autumn Glow applied to apples of cheeks with my Real Techniques blusher brush, it gives a flush of youthful colour to the base and lifts even the tiredest of my clients.

The Catwalk lipstick is so fantastic to have in my kit as the colour suits everyone and when the clear Bella Pierre gloss is added I achieve the most kissable youthful lips on each client.

The eye shadow powder stack is just brilliant and I especially love the range of colours and “champagne” is just so beautiful when applied to inner eyelid to make any accompanying eye shadow pop!

The fact that these products have absolutely no chemicals is even more reason to have them in my vast kit of Make Up and I will say it again I love them!

Real Techniques Make up Brushes

Great quality Make up Brushes are vital when it comes to applying make up. It’s the difference between shedding hairs on your models faces or scratchy harshness from cheap bad quality brushes. I have a vast array of brushes in my kit from Mac Cosmetics, Smashbox and Shu Eumura and have just had the opportunity to try these beauties from Sam Chapman’s Real Techniques range which are available on line or in Boots stores.

The softness, bristle quality and durability is so great even after constant washing and cleaning they still look brand new.

Clients have mentioned how lovely the brushes feel against their skin and I’ve had emails asking about them.

What skin care regime do you use morning & evening?
I always cleanse, tone and moisturise morning and night, I love simple & nivea products and I use a serum from Aldi under my moisturiser it’s amazing!

My must have item would be sudocream for any blemishes.

 I like to get my eyebrows threaded for that clean look, although it hurts like hell

Can’t live without mascara, feel naked without it, I use Loreal Teloscopic. I love Prada perfumes, especially the new Prada Candy!

Daniella Moyles talks to Ann-Marie Carey Makeup

Daniella Moyles talks to Ann-Marie Carey Makeup - 01Daniella Moyles talks to Ann-Marie Carey Makeup - 02

 

What skin care regime do you use morning & evening?
I’m pretty disciplined when it comes to my skincare regime, my Mum works for a beauty salon so I have been well trained to cleanse, tone and moisturize every morning and evening. I also use an eye cream at night and try to use a face scrub once a week and a face mask once a fortnight.

Do you use moisturiser? If so what do you use?
I do, I don’t have a particular favourite brand though. Generally once there fragrance free and use natural ingredients I’m happy. At the moment I’m using a moisturizer I bought at the blue lagoon in Iceland, it’s incredible.

Do you have a must have skin care item?
E45 cream, so simple but so brilliant. I use it all over after every shower, and it’s great for your face too if your skin is irritated after a day of makeup.

What is your favourite beauty treatment ?
Microdermabrasion. I get one every 6-8 weeks at Ealu Spa in Naas. It is a wonder treatment!

Favourite foundation?
MAC face and body, I don’t like makeup that is too thick with very strong coverage. Face and body is light and blends really well into the skin for a really natural finish. Any blemishes can be gone over then with concealer.

Favourite make up brand?
I’m a creature of habit so definitely MAC although I do love NARS too and Rimmel for really affordable great eyeliners, mascaras and lip pencils! That’s more than one…

Can’t live without?
Brow powder. I’ve had an eyebrow obsession for coming up to 4 years now. I started growing mine out about 4 years ago when I realized they were a really unflattering shape, I got a brochure for a spa close to where I live and slowly shaped them myself to look like the girl who was on the cover of it. Now I really appreciate a good set of brows and couldn’t live without them filled to perfection.

Love product?
GloThreaputics – amazing!

Leave product?
Pan Stick/blue eyeshadow, close call between the two.

If you had €200 what skin care or make up would you purchase?
I would probably pick up a nice pot of creme de la mer and stay forever young.

Does make up change how you feel about yourself?
I love nothing more than going makeup free, in fact makeup reminds me of work mostly. I used to love spending an hour or so doing my makeup to go out but now the second I start applying I can’t wait to be finished. I love makeup but its become a bit of a chore.

And lastly what’s your favourite make up look?
Anything with a red lip.
